The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the party is saddened by another sad event which took place yesterday at Lopamdyet area close to Guratopp in Rayfield, Jos South Local Government Area, where 13 people were massacred by some militias believed to be Fulanis in the evening hours of Sunday, 2nd September, 2018.

In a statement signed by the State Publicity Secretary, PDP Plateau State, Sir J .T. Akans ksm fcai, the party condemned the continued killing of innocent Plateau people, adding that "these ugly and unwanted killings have been going on, even when we have security checkpoints everywhere within and outside the state capital."

The statement said: "This has become clear that the government has abandoned its responsibility of protecting its citizens. What is the primary responsibility of government if not to protect people’s lives and properties.

"While killings are going on in the state, tertiary institutions are embarking on strike as a result of failure of government policies, our dear governor is busy wasting our state resources on foreign trips that will have no direct benefit to our people, even when he was not part of the President's China trip.

"It is unfortunate and embarrassing that Governor Lalong lobbied his way to be part of Mr President's visit to China. Most disheartening is the fact that when his request was turned down, out of desperation and lack of priority, he on his own traveled to meet with Mr President in China, leaving his people in a traumatized condition.

"The Peoples Democratic Party is saddened by this trend of ugly events going on in some parts of the state, particularly Northern and Central Senatorial Zones.

"Our prayers and thoughts are with the first families the deceased and injured, indeed, the people of Plateau State."
